Experienced Android users would swear by anything that the best way to get the most out of your device is to root it. However, traditional methods of rooting the device often involved procedures which required usage of a command prompt – a prospect that many users tend to be uncomfortable with. And that is how one-click root solutions came into the picture. A one-click root tool, for the uninitiated, is an automated script which combines all of the commands in the right sequence. All that the user needs to do is to enable a few settings on his device, and plug the phone into the computer, before running the tool.
One-click root tools have evolved in versatility over the years, and offer the ability to do a lot more than just rooting. A new root solution that is doing the rounds these days is Kingo. Kingo supports a long list of Android phones and has been extensively tested on these devices. Check out the list of supported devices to find yours.
